ATDis #9 Fun and Fancy Free

Hi Friends!

Ok so I’d never seen this movie but I love it.  Narrated for the most part by Jiminy Cricket, it is super cute and the music is super fun and I really enjoy the two little stories they have in them.

This is not necessarily from Bongo, but it could be the villain bear.  I found it at Magic Kingdom in Storybook Circus, outside of Barnstormers.

Bongo is the story about a little circus bear but he escapes and tries to survive in the wild.  He meets a cute little girl bear and they hang out and its super cute.  I love the whole little story and his unicycle and his little suit and hat and just yes.  I also love the whole “bear likes to say it with a slap!” type thing, (what they like to say, you’ll just have to watch or send me a message asking).  He’s the cutest little thing, plus I’m a sucker for  Golden-age Hollywood accents.

The Jack and the Beanstalk story (or Mickey and the Giant, if you prefer) was also super adorable.  I had watched this story on Netflix somewhat recently (Netflix has a movie of this and a few other cartoons, I forget what it is titled, but it exists) and the version in the full movie is much different.  It is introduced as a story told at a little girl’s birthday party.  The peculiar thing about this party, however, is that she is one of two humans that exist at the party.  All the other guests are ventriloquist dummies……… yeah.  So on Netflix, its narrated by someone else (I’m relatively certain), and is a more continuous story, rather than being interrupted by the dummies (namely, Charley).  So, this story was much different than I remembered.  Also, the little girl is adorable.

As for Walt’s legacy, I think this just goes to show the storytelling abilities of the crew.  In addition to what I’ve been saying so far, I think this movie focuses more on the storytelling abilities than the past few of the Lost Years of Disney.  Also, an interesting note, this was the last time that Mickey was voiced by Walt.  After this point, Walt was too busy with other things to continue voicing him.

Come with us next time for a musical moment you won’t want to miss!
